Frizell: Glad I Got Surgery
St George Illawarra Dragons second-rower Tyson Frizell admits he is ploughing through his rehabilitation process following his back surgery.
The Wales international underwent the operation to correct a lumbar disk bulge after consultation with a surgeon prior to Christmas having carried the injury on-and-off for the majority of last season.
The local Corrimal Cougars junior and has since commenced his rehabilitation this week and is presently responding well to his light duties program involving both swimming and bike work.
Frizell was recently forced to rule himself out of the inaugural NRL World All-Stars squad due to the recovery process which includes a projected time frame of up to twelve weeks before he can commence any skills or contact training.
